Vicky DiFrancesco is ready to put the past behind her. After a humiliating divorce, she's determined to make her new café a success. The last thing she needs is her first love around, reminding her of what they'd lost. But when her life is threatened, could he be the very man she needs?

Jamie DiSilva's homecoming after retiring from the army isn't the one he'd been hoping for. Now, he's trying to start a home improvement business in a town settled on holding him accountable for the sins of his late brothers. Redeeming himself to the girl he never stopped loving and her family is difficult when his brothers' secrets come back to haunt him.

Untangling themselves from the past means righting several wrongs and deciding if their love is meant to last forever.

Temperamental Italian families with protective alpha males, women with sass, family feuds, second chances, and a mystery to solve. This story just took me right in, and kept the hold till the end, in the early hours of the morning. I felt like I was there with the characters, falling in love, feeling the pain and sorrow of the past, and trying to find the level ground under the feet again after the family tragedies. The connection between Jamie and Vicky was profound, passionate, and real. They were so perfect together, the past setting the foundation for their love. The history of the families, the past events, hardship both of the families had gone through, was palpable. The sorrow runs deep on both sides of the fence, some things are just too difficult to forgive and forget, and move forward from. But is it fair to make Jamie pay for his brothers sins? The character development was definite, one by one the family members were able to let go and move on, accept the past, and remove the guilt and accusations from the innocent parties, as well as their own remorse and shame. Vicky learned to stand up for herself, be seen in her family, learned to live her own life, not the one to please others. Jamie was able to get the acceptance of the town, stand up apart from his brothers, and built a better, healthier relationship with his parents. The mystery that Jamie's brother Sal left for them to solve puts them in real danger, and the fights against the thugs get rough and bloody. This is a captivating, delightful story with so many layers, riddled with charming, likable characters, second chances at love and friendship, big families with troubles and sorrow, but most of all love ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

This was the first book I have read by Maria K. Alexander. Forever In My Heart was definitely a light read. It was nothing too dramatic, nor overbearing. Loved the hero, Jamie, in this read. I guess I love a man who is a protector of his woman and a man who can put his hands to good use. The story to me was a little more about family dynamics than just about the hero and heroine. Maybe there will be another book to tie this thing together with a ribbon. I did enjoy getting to know the characters and what they stood for, Forever In My Heart was definitely a relaxing read, and I did completely enjoy it.

Sexy and sweet with a little bit of adventure thrown in.  I loved Jamie and thought that Vicky's family, (most of them), were too hard on him.  Great chemistry led to some pretty good love scenes. Overall, and enjoyable second chance romance. ARC received in exchange for an honest review

Forever in My Heart is a wonderful, absorbing contemporary romance. This is the second book I've read from this author, and the story is even better than the first. Maria K. Alexander does a stupendous job of creating a large, authentic Italian family in an old Philly setting. The author does such a good job of setting up the heroine's initial dislike of the hero as an ass, I had a hard time warming to him. However, he eventually proves himself a true hero who is protective, brave, and willing to sacrifice anything to save his lady. The story is extremely well written. Plot and pacing are good. Dialogue sounds true to the ear. While the heroine's large, extended family is part of the character of the story, they were a bit too much for me. I'd have preferred more hero-heroine time and fewer intrusive brothers. The chemistry between the heroine and hero were good, and the HEA-ending delivered in spades.
